Less than one year after Frank and Jamie McCourt reached a settlement in their contentious divorce proceedings, the couple is back in court.
After years of high-profile legal battles from California to Massachusetts to Delaware bankruptcy court, Frank and Jamie McCourt have finally reached an agreement about the ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Despite his myriad legal problems, Frank McCourt was handed a legal victory last week.
Massachusetts Superior Court Judge Janet L. Sanders denied Boston-based law firm Bingham McCutchen’s request that she find partner Lawrence I. Silverstein did nothing wrong when he prepared a postnuptial agreement addressing McCourt’s ownership interest in the now-bankrupt Los Angeles Dodgers.
As part of his bankruptcy filing, Frank McCourt claims that his malpractice suit against Boston-based firm Bingham McCutchen is worth “hundreds of millions of dollars.”
The legal wrangling in the McCourt divorce battle continues in a new location: bankruptcy court.
In an unprecedented move, Commissioner of Major League Baseball Bud Selig has taken receivership of the Los Angeles Dodgers as the current owners, Frank and Jamie McCourt, battle over the team as part of their high-profile and hotly contested divorce.
In the first round of the divorce fight between Frank and Jamie McCourt, which includes a battle over ownership of the L.A. Dodgers, the couple’s postnuptial agreement was declared invalid by a trial judge.
As the explosive divorce proceedings of Frank and Jamie McCourt, owners of the LA Dodgers, have played out in all their sordid detail in a Los Angeles courtroom, one lawyer has seen his actions on behalf of the now-feuding couple held up to withering scrutiny.
